Question from Community Care: Circles of Support and Accountability: reducing the threat from sex offenders in the community

    Circles of Support and Accountability: reducing the threat from sex offenders in the community

    * What barriers to the safe and humane integration of sexual offenders exist in your community?

    * Would you be willing to volunteer your personal time to assist a high-risk sexual offender in his/her community integration? Why? Why not?

    * What reporting requirements should apply to a Circles of Support and Accountability volunteer? Should they be required to notify police of imminent risk under the same terms as social services workers and other professionals, or does their volunteer status exempt them from formal reporting under the law?

    GUIDE TIME FOR DISCUSSION: 20 minutes per question
